A – Aroma is straightforward, cooked agave, limestone, olive, brine, lemongrass, anise, ginger, allspice, mint, slight citrus. I’m picking up a hint of cocoa.   T – There is a nice alcohol tingle on the tip of my tongue before settling into the cooked agave, black pepper, minerals, some orchard fruit, celery, anise, and mint. F – I enjoyed the finish, very solid blanco. Overall – This is a well-made, quality blanco; a solid example of the expression.

This was my favorite out of a blind tasting of the top 10 additive-free blancos. I've had the regular Blanco from them before and it was meh. But this was incredible. N- unique nose out of all the samples. Cedar, wet pavement, moist soil, mint T- is that oak? earthy agave, and just tastes dusty but in a good way (I bet you've never heard that description before), bell pepper MF- oily F- Medium and balanced finish

Smells of grass, mint, pepper, a bit of alcohol. Fairly straightforward. A bold flavor! Savory, meaty notes like roasted mushroom mixed with limestone. A long and hot finish. Very interesting Blanco, but not my style.

Nice agave and floral notes on the nose. More of the same flavors with some pepper and slight citrus added in. It feels a bit thin in the mouth but has a nice lasting tingle. 84 Just got to try an older bottle in the blue tin and angled bottle style. Cooked agave sweetness! Bottle is (at least 10 years?) and still has great legs and tastes delicious. Edition# OKD23-B, Lot H201032, Bottle #807. 88

This has a similar nose to #4 with some smoke though not as acrid acrid. A little thin this has some slight sweetness and a good vegetal presence as in yams or similar root vegetables. Finishes with some roast pepper and grill notes.

The Orendain brothers did a great job with this tequila. It’s different, and that’s a good thing, for me. It’s highly vegetal and mineraly. And the finish is long. It has raw and cooked agave and pepper at the front with a pronounced anise flavor that dominates the middle with a lavender and peach finish.

Exactly what I’m looking for, agave forward with enough smoothness to make this truly dangerous. Old school style with hot finish, a welcome change from all the sweet tequilas on the market. Too expensive to make cocktails.

38% Mexican product. 2009 tax stamp. Nose: Spicy, tree fruit, agave notes, and wet rocks. Flavor: Almost caramel like agave richness. Anise and mouth filling spiciness, some earthiness. Some pepper bitterness.

This blanco is really smoky but smooth and just plain delicious. It may not have the complexity of more expensive blancos, but for the money there's no better value. A great everyday sipper.

As a novice taster. For scent, at first I got a hint of citrus. After a few more tries I smell black pepper. As for the taste, I do sense the agave and the black pepper. Also the alcohol on the scent and taste.

The aroma jumps out with lychee, raisins ,a lemon and lime citrus note that are working in tandem, light ethyl, distinct minerality, herbal tones, and fresh summer grass. On the palate, delicious minerality is accompanied by a prominent lychee note, fruit, lemon zest, distinct citrus, smokey tones, cooked agave, and noticeable but balanced brine. The finish features fresh grassiness intertwined with minutely faint smoke and fading agave, creating a lingering and nuanced conclusion.

Fresh nose fades pretty quickly. Agave heavy but in a pleasant way. Taste is easy with little burn. I get some pine notes and a bitter edge of grass and then a lingering, muted sweetness. Mixer??

Nose: slight agave aroma; a touch of alcohol Flavour: peppery; no pronounced cooked agave; pleasant but I was looking for agave taste Finish: really not much there and what is fades quickly. I expected more for the price. I probably wouldn’t buy again. I would recommend to a friend who didn’t like the agave taste. Don’t consider it to be great value.

Arette Artesenal Blaco Suave - Tasting Notes NOM: 1109 Nose: * Green * Floral * Agave Taste: * Smoked agave * Rain water * Brine Finish: * Short but stated * White pepper * Stone fruit Verdict: * Another star from 1109. Not as bright and brine as the regular blanco, but this is elevated, smooth, and elegant. Beautiful, lush, floral agave on the nose. Smoke and brine on the tongue. Finish is short but composed and intentional with hints of stone fruit and agave pulp. Wonderful sipper.
